1st Annual Howard Dragon’s Color Run




On Saturday, April 28th, 2018 Howard Elementary School PTA will be hosting our 1st Annual Howard Dragon’s Color Run. There will be a 5k and 1 mile fun run throughout the neighborhood where you pass through color zones and get doused in a rainbow of color.

April is National Child Abuse Prevention month so we want to help increase awareness and support for two amazing charities.   We will be donating 10% of the proceeds to each of the following  charities:

Child Help– Prevention and treatment for abused and neglected children, and Forgotten Harvest– Stopping child hunger.

The rest of the proceeds will be used for the PTA to help provide financial support for Howard Elementary School Classrooms.

This is a super fun event for all ages that promotes a life-long healthy way of living and brings our strong community together to make a difference.

Howard STAND students will be selling Santa hats tomorrow (Thursday) for $2.  The hat will be personalized with your child’s name on it.  We are asking that all hats remain at school until Friday so that students can wear them to the Howard Sing-Along.  One hat per person, please.  All proceeds will be used to purchase fleece to make animal blankets for the Humane Society.

Thank you for sharing and caring!!

Annual Howard Giving Tree

If you’ve visited the school in the last couple days, you may have noticed that our Giving Tree is set up in the hallway.  Each year, Howard students and teachers collect warm hats, gloves/mittens and socks to donate to those in need in our community.  Donations will be collected and placed on and around the tree.  If you would like to donate, please send new winter items:  hats, gloves/mittens, and socks.  Thank you for your generosity!

Thank you!

Dear Howard Learning Community,

Thank you for the amazing level of participation in our efforts to donate to families in need this Holiday Season.  As you know, we partnered with Yogurtopia to collect food items for Gleaners Food Bank. We also partnered with Project Dignity by taking collections of clothing and other essentials for families in need.  Your generosity during this collection period has been extraordinary, and reflects very highly on our entire community.  By taking part in this process, we are teaching a very valuable lesson to our students about taking care of those who are less fortunate.  This reminds us all to be thankful during the holiday season. We are blessed to have such a wonderful community!

Thank you to everyone who participated or helped in any way!

Congratulations to Mrs. Turk’s class for winning the Yogurtopia challenge to donate the most food items! The students all received a $5.00 gift certificate from Yogurtopia!
